November 25 2009 – Great Grab

Strip, pause.  Strip, pause.  Strip, pause.  Repeat.  At least half of my shooting head is inside the guides.  I stop stripping, thinking, “what to do next?”  “Where to cast next?”

Pause, pause, pause – Yank!  Big head shake.  Strong fish.  An awe-inspiring, crushing take.  Could well be the last day of my season this year.  A big chrome buck, released upriver, safe from the seals.
